Work here is an attempt to engage some re-occurring themes with new technologies. For the neck pieces, there is a return to the sculptural and formal problem of continuous chain linkage. The open spacing of the elements along with the thinness of the connecting wire creates a floating array of elements that hover in the defined space of the wreath.

The bracelets, are made in a similar way, but instead of using the chain link, these are made as open, woven structures. The taught basket-like structure, with its openness and lightness, is meant to simply and directly define the sculptural space around the wrist. The flexibility is employed here to make continuous, rhythmic structures that do not need a hinge or catch. They are meant to simply stretch and return so as to accommodate the wrist.

All are assembled from multiple modular units and stainless steel wire. The modular units for these were designed on the computer with a CAD modeling program. Those forms were then “printed” as solid forms. Some of the prints were used as a pattern for making cast, sterling silver connecting units. Other printed parts (translucent acrylic) were used directly in the final jewelry objects.
